Video footage captured by a drone hobbyist shows what are believed to be false killer whales chasing a juvenile shark. The footage was shared on Twitter by local news agency 7 News Sydney, ahead of the city’s whale season.

False killer whales (Pseudorca crassidens) are not whales at all: they are in fact the third-largest members of the dolphin family (Delphinidae). These whales (uh, dolphins?) are found in the tropical and warm waters of the Indian, Pacific and Atalantic oceans.

Watch the video clip below for the incredible footage.
